Gamers Retail Website Lists Milky Holmes Movie Project
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The Japanese retail website Gamers!' listing for the April issue of Monthly Bushiroad magazine includes an image sample (pictured at right) for an original "bromide" (publicity image) extra that Gamers! will bundle with the issue that says "Milky Holmes movie adaptation planning start!!" The April issue will ship in Japan on March 7.
Gamers! has since removed the sample image from its website.
The delayed fifth episode of the Detective Opera Milky Holmes TD anime series had teased a "mystery" on Saturday for fans to solve. Tokyo MX, TV Kanagawa, Hokuriku Broadcasting, TV Aichi, and Sun TV all aired the Tantei Kageki Milky Holmes TD episode in different regions, and the episode's end card art showed a different pair of letters for each region. Rearranged vertically, the end cards' letters read "Milky Movie" (pictured at left). However, the anime's website reported on Monday that the end card for Hokuriku Broadcasting ("YE") was not the image that was planned to be unveiled.
The franchise has inspired four television anime series and three anime specials.
